Boston Marathon Countdown: The Daily Feed, Fit-Ink style

I can attempt to report, photograph and tell stories about the Boston Marathon all I want. But I'm a one-woman show when it comes to most of the marathon action so it's tough to keep up, and until hijacking my mom's iPhone, I was technology deficient too. So I still haven't gotten the hang of the Twitter but at least I found a couple of cool sites offering tons of marathon action. Check 'em out (especially since I'm having a hard time keeping up after driving between two states in the last 48 hours and walking through the expo again to waste time when my hotel room wasn't ready yet):
  • Runner's World has a special section devoted to the Boston Marathon and they'll be blogging live from the press room on race day. Find the action at
  • Liz and I bantered back and forth with Paul at last year...I discovered he's back again (and better than ever) at Also check out his Fit-Ink shout out--sweet!
  • Courtesy of The Boston Globe, has a marathon-specific site complete with a blog, course details, spectator guide, photos, 2009 information and runner stories. Endless reading, I tell ya.
  • Just in case you need easy access to the official Boston Marathon site, don't forget you can track your runner and read about how the race unfolds at or
  • And if you're a Twitter fan search for Bart Yasso (@BartYasso), Josh Cox (@JoshCoxRun), Meb Keflezighi (@runmeb), Ryan Hall (@ryanhall3), and Runner's World (@runnersworld) and follow them. I'm a fan of reading their updates--and see who retweets stuff about them. 
These are just for starters, but entertaining for sure. I'd post more but I need to rest up...with a race on Monday, tonight's my last good night of sleep before tossing and turning Sunday.


  1. Thanks so much! Expect a report soon, haven't been near a computer since returning from dinner but now am too tired to post :( Stay tuned tomorrow and thanks for reading!
